Iran's Foreign Minister spokesman Ramin Mehmanparast rejected the claims of Iran's interference in Iraqi parliamentary election, the official IRNA news agency reported.

Iran has repeatedly said that "Iraqis are politically mature enough and do not need anyone to determine their fate," Mehmanparast told IRNA.

He dismissed UK's recent accusations against Iran about the country's alleged interference in Iraq's internal affairs including its parliamentary election, the report said.

On Sunday, Iraqi People went to the polls for a new round of parliamentary election.

The people of Iraq need no interference of any foreign countries, especially those that are from outside the region, Mehmanparast was quoted as saying.

In the meantime, Iran's Parliament Speaker Ali Larijani on Sunday warned the U.S. officials not to interfere in Iraq's current election, the local ISNA news agency reported.

Special western countries and their Iraqi allies are accusing Iran of interfering in Iraqi internal affairs using its deep influence on ruling Iraqi Shiite government. The charges, however, are denied by Iran claiming it seeks Iraq's sovereignty and independence.
